What is Kindle?

Kindle, any of the portable wireless electronic reading devices (e-readers) manufactured by in the United States. In 2007, the first Kindle was released. Amazon’s Kindles became the most popular e-readers, with Amazon e-books accounting for two-thirds of the electronic book industry.

The History of Kindle

First and foremost, there is the Amazon Kindle. When the first Kindle was released in 2007, it was a huge hit, selling out in hours and remained out of stock for months, but it wasn’t the eReader behemoth that it is now. It had a 6-inch screen and 250MB of memory that could be expanded by SD card, and it cost $400 at the time.



Search within your book

When you want to jump to a specific spot in your book, Kindle makes it simple to search for words or terms within it—and you can simply hit the return button when you're done to save your place.


Explore book with X-Ray

X-Ray makes it simple to maintain track of your book's characters, locations, and events. So, if you come across a name you don't recognize—say, Francesco Melzi from Walter Isaacson's Leonardo da Vinci—tap it and we'll tell you who it is.


Wikipedia Lookup

You can seek up dictionary definitions and Wikipedia references directly from your book when you come across an idea, event, or person you're unfamiliar with. To see the Wikipedia entry, simply press and hold a word, then release.
